#1211: Nissin Demae Iccho Instant Noodle With Soup Base Artificial Chicken Flavour

Hey welcome to November! Here’s another one we got on my birthday trip to Canada in March! I was just looking at the little kid caricature on the side of this bowl and was thinking how it looks like he’s sick. I mean he has a very red nose and his cheeks are red and covered in spots. Measles? Mumps? I think I’m reading too much into it. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. Add powder and vegetable sachets, fill to line, let sit. Then add the oil sachet, stir and done.

The noodle block.

Powder soup base sachet.

A granular powder.

The solid ingredient sachet.

Corn and green onion and narutomaki abound.

Seasoned oil sachet.

Has a sesame oil scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken seasoned with Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse and Roast Seasoning, broccoli, bell pepper and sweet onion. The noodles are plentiful and kind of thin. The flavor was what I had an issue with; the sesame oil didn’t jibe right with the chicken and kind of had a burnt flavor. I did like how it thickened up the broth a little though. The veggies were quite nice – plentiful little narutomaki all around. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4897878120017.
